The more we test derma e® products, the more impressed we become. derma e® is not just a big faceless corporation, it’s a company that has been family owned for over 30 years.

They definitely walk the talk – derma e® products are cruelty-free and 100 percent vegan, plus their manufacturing and operations are offset 100 percent by wind power. All of this, plus super effective products, make derma e® a line easy to review.
In January, derma e®, launched its new Firming DMAE Eye Lift and Deep Wrinkle Peptide Moisturizer SPF 30. Doctor-developed, clinically-tested and consumer-tested, these healthy, safe, naturally advanced formulas deliver real visible results.
“derma e® is raising the bar for natural skin care performance with the launch of these two new products,” says Jennifer Norman, Vice President of Marketing for derma e®. “In pre-launch consumer testing, Firming DMAE Eye Lift and Deep Wrinkle Peptide Moisturizer SPF 30 showed significant skin firming, lifting and wrinkle smoothing results. They deliver high-end benefits without compromising the health of your body, the health of your skin or the health of the environment.”
So how did our results compare to the results of the 8 week study? Read on to find out!
LISA’S SIDE: derma e® Deep Wrinkle Peptide Moisturizer SPF 30 ($45)
I tested the the triple-action, daytime moisturizer that is designed to smooth and relax deep wrinkles while also protecting skin from the harmful rays of the sun. Key ingredients include advanced peptides Argireline®, Matrixyl® synthe’6® and Clear Zinc Oxide chemical-free sunscreen.
In their study, after 8 weeks the participants saw some pretty impressive improvements. 100% reported less fine lines, 96% reported less wrinkles, and 96% reported less sagging.
I used this moisturizer for two months, applying it every morning. This is a very thick cream – so thick, in fact, I had some trouble getting it out of the airless pump tube packaging. I found that I needed to squeeze the tube while also pressing the dispenser in order to get enough product. Other than that small note, my experience was terrific. Sometimes day moisturizers with sunscreen leave a white or gray cast to my skin, but this doesn’t. There is no fragrance and after two months I can say I feel that my fine lines are less noticeable and I have less redness. I am very impressed! The Deep Wrinkle Peptide Moisturizer is a real winner.
MARCIA’S SIDE: derma e® Firming DMAE Eye Lift ($24.95)
Lisa knows that I need to try every single eye cream on the market so she happily let me test this out when we received two products. I didn’t see the following results but….
Improvements reported by participants after eight weeks of use:
- 95% reported less sagging
- 95% reported less wrinkles
- 90% reported less droopiness
Participants experienced soft, smooth, tighter skin around the eyes:
- “Skin seems to have more elasticity”
- “The skin around my eyes feels tighter”
- “Skin is softer and smoother”
… what I did find is that my eyes did look firmer after use. I’ve used this both night and day and prefer it for daytime. I love seeing the results of the firming since I wake up with puffy eyes most days.
The ingredients in this helps to lift and firm the area around my eyes. It works to smoothe the crow’s feet that I am not happy seeing. The key ingredients include DMAE and advanced peptides Matrixyl® synthe’6®, Argireline® and InstaLift®Goji Berry.
